I did a few more turns of the game and I think I am getting the hang of it. The Indians finally drove the red coats out of the blockhouse and then went on to capture a portion of the wagon train and slew the civilians that were with it. Rogers Rangers drove off the company of marines, but then took a number of losses when fired upon by Canadian trappers. A company of the 42nd Highlanders has arrived to try to help Rogers' men break through to the fort.
The grenadier company of the 28th drove off the war party threatening the farmstead, but another group of warriors has arrived on the other side of the table trying to capture yet another farm. More than half of the wagon train is now in enemy hands. The braves are trying to hurry the booty back to their village where it will be easier to defend.
On one turn I got the entire way through the deck before the Tiffen card showed up. That was a fun turn!
All in all, I can see that this is going to be a fun set of rules to capture the thrills of the French and Indian War.
